Aww that pretty girl! I love her jacket, especially that it’s large enough to fit a big gal like her. Who is the manufacturer? 

Thanks for letting us know how she’s doing. Glad she at least ate something! You’re right, do whatever it takes to keep her eating. Keep that fridge stocked with the stinkiest meats, cheeses and whatever else you think she’ll eat and you’ll be set.

Just wanted to throw this out there, but that Gabapentin dose seems pretty low for a dog her size. Wyatt Ray is on 400mg 3x a day for ongoing pain control and he is only 81 lbs. You may want to ask your vet if it’s OK to increase and that may help ease the rapid breathing / panting signals. Gabapentin is usually OK to bump up but be sure ask.

I hope you guys have a lovely weekend. Is Fall coming soon to the northeast? Geez it’s too early!

Thank you for the suggestion on the gabapentin! Our vet did say that we could up her dose, but she didnt say why. Now that i know ill definitely ask them! 

 i got her coat off amazon its a zack and zoey nor’easter. It was one of the few ive found that could accommodate her deep chest and skinny waist. They have a very resonable price and lots of colors. Definitely a must have here. Fall is coming fast. Were actually stacking fire wood today! I might even start the stove for roane tomorrow if the temp dips😉

My sweet soulmate Roane was diagnosed with osteo in June of 2019. Had a rear leg amp on July 2nd & crossed the rainbow bridge to be with her sister Gypsy on the first day of Autumn Sept 23 2019.

Yep, that’s Roane’s woodstove alrigjt!  She clearly is “one” with it!  

I keep scrolling back up to look at those photos.  She knows how to warm herself head to butt.  And she is such a pretty girl!

My Frankie and Merry Myrtle (and Happy Hannah in the past) will sleep by the woodstove and get so warm they’ll pant, but they won’t  give it up!

Thanks fot rhe smiles Roane😊

Hugs

Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!

Hi Roane,

So there is a special day right around the corner.  Your one year Angelvirsary is on Sept 23rd. I don’t have to tell you how much your mama misses and loves you, because you already know! She will definitely be thinking of you on Wednesday, so make sure you send her a big, big sign.

Your tripawd family will be thinking of you as well….

We all love and miss you Roane…

My Beautiful Beloved Brownie was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma on February 26, 2019.  With all odds against him he lived an additional one year and eight days with amputation, love, and prayer.  I was honored to be his mom, and I have never been so proud!  He will live forever in my Heart!

Hi Bev, We are all thinking of you today.  I could tell you how much Roane loves you, but you know she does.  I could tell you that Roane is still with you, but you know she is.  All I will say is your tripawd family is here if you need us, and our heart aches with yours….

thank you all so much for helping me celebrate Roane’s lifesp_hearticon2we couldn’t have made the journey with out the love and support of the tripawd community. 

One year ago today my sweet soulmate earned her angel wings. they say that the souls of our pets choose us and i was blessed to have her love, laughter and light in my life. I’ll never have the words to express how much i loved her or how much i miss her… Be good sweet girl no barking and no chewing mama loves you. 

Our dear friend Nancy made me a beautiful video to help me honor and remember Roane. I’ve been saving it for a special occasion and i think this is the perfect day to share it.  (as soon as i can figure out howsmiley2)

Bev, I never told you why I picked this song.  It was because of the line “I’m ok now, you can go now”.  That is what you did, a completely selfless act putting the one you love before our own feelings.sp_hearticon2sp_hearticon2sp_hearticon2

Thank you for posting the video for me nancy. My tech savvy needs more coffee today😉

I love the song that you picked, it was perfect. I dont know if i told you but you also used one of my favorite quotes. “What hurts today makes you stronger tomorrow” 

Thank you for creating this beautiful memory for me ❤ they say that grief is love with no where to go. Everytime i watch this it helps me work through my grief and smile more.

And lets not forget the frogs, they help me smile too! Everytime i see one i say Roane must be thinking of me 😉

Hope you are remembering all the memories that you and Roane created together.  I love the memory of you and Roane in the pond.

Oh my gosh the pond, yes! Who cares about some silly back leg when you can be the swamp thing in the pond hunting frogs! 

She had such a big personality and she always kept me on my toes! 

We have a big tool shed out back with an slopping roof off the side for firewood. One day i was getting ready for work and heard her barking out back. I looked out the upstairs window and she was on top of the shed roof barking like a crazy dog at a squirrel that was in the tree next to the shed!!!! She jumped the 3 feet onto the slanted woodshed roof and scaled her way up!!! (This was before she became a tripawd) At the time i think i had a heart attack but now it makes me think of snoopy on the dog house 🤣 silly Roane!!!

I was avoiding this all day because I knew I would be sobbing like a baby.  I know the beautiful  tributes that Nancy can put together and I knew I would be smiling and crying at the same time.  Well, sobbing  like a baby was kind of the overriding  emotion because of that song at first.    OMD!  That song!!  Those words!!  The quote(s)!  Nancy has a unique way of coming up  with some of the most beautiful  ways of touching our Souls.  Those memories though of a life well loved and well lived..PERFECT!!!.

Those beautiful pictures that Nancy put together, and then to read the subsequent  posts Bev made chock full of happy memories  made my heart smile!!   

I loved seeing the video of  her two hoomans helping her so lovingly and gently with the sling💖  And Roane gave a good little shake off when they dropped it.

And the pictures of you and Roane snuggling  on the floor with her “hugging” you with her paw.  So much love between you two😊

Cute pictures of  Nurse Moe and, of course, Angel Gypsy.  Roane will always be remembered  here and loved for who she is….a gent lpving Soul with a Warrior Spirit, and the Founder of Autumn’s Angels😎

With love
